Barcelona hotel near cruise port

❮ Back To Message Board
We are sailing from Barcelona on a Celebrity cruise in May and would like a reasonably priced hotel near the port prior to sailing. We wish to explore the city so would there be a better location to stay?

I stayed at Hotel 62 in Sept. 2018. Excellent location, great breakfast and room with a terrace. Boutique hotel, quiet, good front desk staff. Easy to see many sites on foot. BUT it is right in the middle of the city. But taxis are plentiful.

If you are a fan of Gaudi's architecture, you might enjoy staying at the Hotel Gaudi, just off Las Ramblas. It is across the street from Palau Guell and street-facing rooms on the upper floors have terraces with straight-on views of the historic homes' whimsical roof.
The cruise port would be a short taxi-ride away.

To Nancy & Adventuregirl,
I am so sorry but I just saw your responses regarding Barcelona hotel.
I appreciate your informative responses and I apologize for not responding. I really never saw either response until now.
Thank you both!!
